      A Few Simple Rules   05/22/2017

      Sailing Anarchy is a very lightly moderated site. This is by design, to afford a more free atmosphere for discussion. There are plenty of sailing forums you can go to where swearing isn't allowed, confrontation is squelched and, and you can have a moderator finger-wag at you for your attitude. SA tries to avoid that and allow for more adult behavior without moderators editing your posts and whacking knuckles with rulers. We don't have a long list of published "thou shalt nots" either, and this is by design. Too many absolute rules paints us into too many corners. So check the Terms of Service - there IS language there about certain types of behavior that is not permitted. We interpret that lightly and permit a lot of latitude, but we DO reserve the right to take action when something is too extreme to tolerate (too racist, graphic, violent, misogynistic, etc.). Yes, that is subjective, but it allows us discretion. Avoiding a laundry list of rules allows for freedom; don't abuse it. However there ARE a few basic rules that will earn you a suspension, and apparently a brief refresher is in order. 1) Allegations of pedophilia - there is no tolerance for this. So if you make allegations, jokes, innuendo or suggestions about child molestation, child pornography, abuse or inappropriate behavior with minors etc. about someone on this board you will get a time out. This is pretty much automatic; this behavior can have real world effect and is not acceptable. Obviously the subject is not banned when discussion of it is apropos, e.g. talking about an item in the news for instance. But allegations or references directed at or about another poster is verboten. 2) Outing people - providing real world identifiable information about users on the forums who prefer to remain anonymous. Yes, some of us post with our real names - not a problem to use them. However many do NOT, and if you find out someone's name keep it to yourself, first or last. This also goes for other identifying information too - employer information etc. You don't need too many pieces of data to figure out who someone really is these days. Depending on severity you might get anything from a scolding to a suspension - so don't do it. I know it can be confusing sometimes for newcomers, as SA has been around almost twenty years and there are some people that throw their real names around and their current Display Name may not match the name they have out in the public. But if in doubt, you don't want to accidentally out some one so use caution, even if it's a personal friend of yours in real life. 3) Posting While Suspended - If you've earned a timeout (these are fairly rare and hard to get), please observe the suspension. If you create a new account (a "Sock Puppet") and return to the forums to post with it before your suspension is up you WILL get more time added to your original suspension and lose your Socks. This behavior may result a permanent ban, since it shows you have zero respect for the few rules we have and the moderating team that is tasked with supporting them. Check the Terms of Service you agreed to; they apply to the individual agreeing, not the account you created, so don't try to Sea Lawyer us if you get caught. Just don't do it. Those are the three that will almost certainly get you into some trouble. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, please do the following: Refrain from quoting the offending text, it makes the thread cleanup a pain in the rear Press the Report button; it is by far the best way to notify Admins as we will get e-mails. Calling out for Admins in the middle of threads, sending us PM's, etc. - there is no guarantee we will get those in a timely fashion. There are multiple Moderators in multiple time zones around the world, and anyone one of us can handle the Report and all of us will be notified about it. But if you PM one Mod directly and he's off line, the problem will get dealt with much more slowly. Other behaviors that you might want to think twice before doing include: Intentionally disrupting threads and discussions repeatedly. Off topic/content free trolling in threads to disrupt dialog Stalking users around the forums with the intent to disrupt content and discussion Repeated posting of overly graphic or scatological porn content. There are plenty web sites for you to get your freak on, don't do it here. And a brief note to Newbies... No, we will not ban people or censor them for dropping F-bombs on you, using foul language, etc. so please don't report it when one of our members gives you a greeting you may find shocking. We do our best not to censor content here and playing swearword police is not in our job descriptions. Sailing Anarchy is more like a bar than a classroom, so handle it like you would meeting someone a little coarse - don't look for the teacher. Thanks.

MSG Coming to AC34 in SF

Just received a confirmation that a little bit of MSG is coming to SF next month. Now I just need someone to arrange for the girl to take a ride on a AC45. I guarantee she will not throw the trim out or get in the way. Afterwords, maybe a trip up on the GG for a view and sprinkle in the ebb tide.

 

Anyone?

Another pair of her combat boots are hanging in her favorite ridiculous little pub, The Backstreet Bar, in Beaufort, North Carolina.

 

I'm going to visit them later this month.

Pogen,

Excellent thought! I was thinking of an ebb tide dusting from the GG but an AC45 ride then a PacCup ride, wow!

 

Let's see what we can do.

We tried...not enough time to get her there before the PacCup.

 

Not to get all sappy on all of you, but I don't know if you folks can imagine how much all of this means to me...

 

Message me if you're going somewhere fun and you'd like some of her ashes along for the ride!

 

Love, MSS

Well, cocktail hour last night was wonderful with Catherine in the house. We had a great time, she drank me under the table.:lol:

With the current planning in place, I think she would enjoy a nice babbling brook encounter with the American River at the Gold Discovery Park.

 

We recently had a 4.6 billion year old meteorite come down upon us as well and it is of the rare type that offered life to earth, (CM type carbonaceous chondrite). Fitting for the star dust to meet MSG again in her basic elements and flow to the sea. So she will be in the NorCal sailing arena for a while.

 

Pics to follow.

Beautiful, Rick, just beautiful.

 

Saying thank you does not even begin to cover it.

 

Catherine and I talked about being one with the cosmos a good bit back in February and March while we watched the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter in the night sky.

 

Love, Chris

Can you tell us more MSS?

 

Someone in California asked me to send him some ashes a few weeks ago. Well, turns out he is an AC45 sailor.. Shortly after I sent the ashes, I was sorting some of Catherine's papers, and came across her bucket list, which she had written in February and March. On it she had written "get to San Fran for the Americas's Cup", so I shared this information in a message once the ashes were on their way to California.

 

On July 20, 2012, at 2:25 PST, a bit of Catherine's ashes were spread from AC45 #4, with the Golden Gate bridge and the San Francisco skyline in the background.

 

When the sailor on board explained what he was going to do to the OR host, the OR photographer was asked to go out in the RIB to get some pics, which are what you see here. I just got these pics last night.

 

I was initially asked to keep things confidential, so I don't want to say who is behind this amazing thing, but if that sailor wants to identify himself here to get some much-deserved credit for performing this act of kind, selfless generosity...well, that is up to him.

 

Let's just say that as the whole thing came together, I was absolutely floored.

Wow. Just wow. Do you think it would be OK to put this on the front page, provided he stays anonymous?

;) if you have the coordinates of that place you can try to have it charted as "MSG's hideout" :)

 

did something similar a couple of years ago, overhere it's not really legal but what the f*ck huh if it's the person's wish ? we dropped the ashes of my brother in law's father right next to a buoy a mile offshore, since that day the note in the logbook does not read "passing Weststroombank buoy" anymore, but "passing Gaston's buoy" B)

Wow that's an incredible story, and very generous of the anonymous benefactor that organized it. It hits close to home too.

My brother Mike

lived in SF and loved to sail. Colon cancer got him at 49. His ashes are also in SF bay.

 

They both have good company for a long sail.

Hats off to OR for recognizing and accommodating this situation.

 

What we need are the lat/log coordinates of the drop - if anyone can provide them it would be great.

MSS has also sent me a bit of Catherine, and I'll be scattering her ashes on Lake Minnetonka, and also taking her with me to Australia in late September.

 

Catherine told me several times that she wanted to go to the Heaven Can Wait 24 hour race for cancer, so she's coming with me this time. I couldn't possibly be more honored.
